  • Overs 1-50
  • Overs 51-100
  • Overs 101-150

Umar Gul to McCullum, OUT, bad start for New Zealand and it's the key man McCullum, it pitched outside off and was full, McCullum shaped to leave and was clearly surprised by the inward movement, it thudded into the top of his front pad above the kneeroll right in front of middle stump as he offered no shot, Daryl Harper thought about it before raising the finger, the only thing that could have saved him was height

BB McCullum lbw b Umar Gul 2 (4m 3b 0x4 0x6) SR: 66.66

New Zealand 3/1   MJ Guptill 1* (3b)   Umar Gul 1-0-3-1

Umar Gul to Williamson, OUT, this time Harper detects the edge! Short around off and he gets a thick edge defending off the back foot through to the keeper, they all go up and Harper seemed to be expecting Kane to walk but he eventually puts the finger up

KS Williamson c †Adnan Akmal b Umar Gul 21 (53m 34b 2x4 0x6) SR: 61.76

New Zealand 46/2   MJ Guptill 18* (36b 4x4)   Umar Gul 6.1-0-16-2

Tanvir Ahmed to Guptill, OUT, well well well, Guptill's patience finally runs out and Tanvir is to be credited for almost boring him out, it was outside off and short and he went for the cut but could only get an under-edge through to the keeper, another start goes unconverted for Guptill

MJ Guptill c †Adnan Akmal b Tanvir Ahmed 29 (143m 97b 5x4 0x6) SR: 29.89

New Zealand 98/3   LRPL Taylor 37* (63b 4x4 1x6)   Tanvir Ahmed 6.5-1-23-1

Tanvir Ahmed to Ryder, OUT, gone! two in two! Successive golden ducks for Ryder who will be on a king pair in the second innings, it was on off and moved away a touch, Ryder nibbled fatally at it through to the keeper, Pakistan have firmly wrested the initiative back here while John Wright will no doubt be tearing his hair out

JD Ryder c †Adnan Akmal b Tanvir Ahmed 0 (2m 1b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

New Zealand 98/4   LRPL Taylor 37* (63b 4x4 1x6)   Tanvir Ahmed 7-2-23-2

Abdur Rehman to Franklin, OUT, soft soft dismissal, short down leg and Franklin tried to work it away but got a thin edge through to Adnan who did well to hang on with his vision obscured, just as Pakistan seemed to be drooping in the field they pick up a wicket

JEC Franklin c †Adnan Akmal b Abdur Rehman 33 (130m 97b 5x4 0x6) SR: 34.02

New Zealand 166/5   LRPL Taylor 71* (152b 6x4 1x6)   Abdur Rehman 21-7-45-1

Wahab Riaz to Taylor, OUT, and he strikes first ball! It was full and wide outside off, he flashed hard at it but could only get a thick snick on it and Adnan dived to his right to take a good catch and remove the main threat. Good innings from Taylor ends with his team needing more

LRPL Taylor c †Adnan Akmal b Wahab Riaz 78 (251m 168b 6x4 1x6) SR: 46.42

New Zealand 180/6   RA Young 6* (28b)   Wahab Riaz 12.1-3-28-1

Tanvir Ahmed to Young, OUT, a vital breakthrough just before lunch! Tanvir gets a wicket despite looking fairly ordinary, it was short and wide outside off but maybe a touch close than Young would have liked, he couldn't free the arms that much and snicked it through to Adnan who grabs his 6th catch of the innings

RA Young c †Adnan Akmal b Tanvir Ahmed 57 (221m 162b 6x4 0x6) SR: 35.18

New Zealand 318/7   DL Vettori 78* (127b 8x4)   Tanvir Ahmed 24.3-5-93-3

Umar Gul to Southee, OUT, he was hanging on the back foot, so when the half-volley on off came he had to reach for it and ends up scooping a dolly of a catch to cover

TG Southee c Misbah-ul-Haq b Umar Gul 1 (13m 9b 0x4 0x6) SR: 11.11

New Zealand 322/8   DL Vettori 81* (133b 8x4)   Umar Gul 27-3-74-3

Umar Gul to Arnel, OUT, can the Phantom get his skipper to a Test hundred? Arnel tried hard but this was too good for him, pitched on off and nipped back into the pad on middle, that was going on to hit. Stick around folks, Martin is coming out! Gordon has got what he wanted

BJ Arnel lbw b Umar Gul 1 (14m 12b 0x4 0x6) SR: 8.33

New Zealand 338/9   DL Vettori 96* (142b 9x4 1x6)   Umar Gul 28.3-3-80-4

Abdur Rehman to Vettori, OUT, that's it, bowled out for 356, he comes down and heaves Rehman away to cow corner but doesn't quite get the distance, Misbah takes the catch to end Vettori's excellent knock

DL Vettori c Misbah-ul-Haq b Abdur Rehman 110 (248m 166b 10x4 1x6) SR: 66.26

New Zealand 356/10   CS Martin 4* (16b 1x4)   Abdur Rehman 45.1-11-96-2
